Making new friends just got a whole lot easier, with Sparks

The Independent has created a modern-day meeting spot, by using what's great about online networking, email, photo-sharing and phone technology.

Best of all, you get to use our services for FREE, in a secure and safe forum which you control.

Show the real you a little or a lot with photos, phone, email and information which allows you to make the first impression your best impression.

Here's what Sparks gives you:

  • Free Profiles (with questions to bring out your best side)
  • Photos, questionnaires, and plenty of privacy
  • "I Saw You" feature, Santa Barbara's finest
  • Free recorded messages to hear your person of interest
  • Respond to your messages also free!
  • MySearch, a Santa Barbara first in meeting folks.
  • The best questions, best format, the best way to display what's great about you.

The only time you pay is when you see someone you just have to talk to... and it's inexpensive, as little as 50 cents per day for unlimited usage.
